Solving Near-Surface Problems with Geophysics and Engineering
Near Surface Panel Discussion

17 September 2019
12:05 PM - 1:05 PM

Convention Center: Room 221A

Panelists: Dr. Stacey Tucker-Kulesza, K-State University; Dr. Joseph Coe, Temple University; Dr. Mark Everett, Texas A&M University; Jacob Spinsby, Terracon

Engineers and geophysicists often focus on the same near-surface problems, and in some cases collaborate on the same projects, but information can sometimes get lost in translation.  It is important that both professions utilize each other's expertise effectively so that these problems can be solved efficiently to reduce the opportunity for future failures.  This panel aims to provide students and professionals with a better understanding of how the engineering and geophysical communities are working together and how they can work together better.  Panelists will include engineering and geophysics faculty members as well as working professionals in the engineering sector to provide perspectives from research and development to practical applications.
